Pain Management Services

If you are in need of pain management services, we have Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) from NorthStar Anesthesia with us at the medical center. With a physician referral, patients in need of a epidural steroid injection may come in at any time.

Epidural steroids treat problems including:

  • Discogenic pain (bulging or herniated discs) in the back and neck
  • Sciatica
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Failed back surgery syndrome
  • Pinched nerves

Epidural steroid injections reduce inflammation, swelling and irritation of the nerves by delivering steroids directly to the affected area. They are administered by a pain specialist, and have been safely and effectively used in the treatment of chronic neck and back pain for over 40 years.
